Night fision sight bad fit?
« on: March 24, 2020, 11:01:59 PM »
Just installed a set of night fision sights on my p07. Problem is, the stock front was in there real good. Like you want it. The night fision front slide right in. No resistance at all. I took a video but don’t know how to upload it. I put blue loctite all around it and on the screw but I’m still concerned.

Yep I know exactly what you mean. Everyone was raving about Night Fision so I tried a set for my P-07 and had the exact same problem.Front sight drops in with no resistance. I called them and sent the front sight back but the one they sent to replace it was only slightly better. It had some resistance but you could still easily install/remove it by hand. Called them again and I get the "well your gun must be out of spec response". Yeah not buying that. I installed the sight with green loctite which I knew would hold it and it did.
After that I tried another set of their sights for a 1911 with Novak dovetails. Yeah right. The front sight was so undersize it would have been too short by the time I got it to fit and how nice the rear sight was so undersize it had .003 front to rear movement on a dial indicator.
I sent them back and got a refund. 2 bad experiences are enough and there are far too many other places to get sights.
I went with Dawson for the 1911.

Sorry y’all had to take one for the team but thanks guys!  Not going to waste my money on them for my P-07 or any other gun for that matter. Appreciate the heads up!

I contacted them today and they asked me if I installed the set screw. I almost lost my mind. I’m done with them.

I installed a Glow Dome night sights on my P07.
The night sights are better than the Trijicon HD I installed on my G19 but the yellow front of the Night Fission during day shooting is not bright, unless I shoot directly under the sun where in the front yellow sight will be bright.

Btw, fit of the Glow Dome Night Sights on my P07.2 is superb. No problem at all
